Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star Eddie Redmayne was a recent guest on Watch What Happens Live, Bravo’s late night, interactive talk show hosted by Andy Cohen. He put to rest the rumor that he had dated Taylor Swift. In so doing, he mentioned that he met the pop singing superstar when she auditioned for Les Miserables.
Eddie’s first revelation — about his dating life — in response to a fan caller’s question, set the record straight about him being among the famous actors from the U.K. romantically linked to Taylor. The Bad Blood singer, as many people across the world know, had relationships with British guys that included Harry Styles, Calvin Harris, and Tom Hiddleston. She reportedly had amicable settlement with the last two, inspiring her to write songs about them.
The Taylor Swift-Eddie Redymane Memorable Moment
The part in the 2012 musical drama film that Taylor Swift auditioned for eventually went to British singer-actress Samantha Barks, now 26. Eddie Redmayne recalled that the Grammy Award-winning singer “was amazing in the audition” and also mentioned that they got to sing together and it was a memorable moment.
The British model-turned-actor, as some fans may misconstrue, did not mean to throw shade at the Shake It Off singer in Andy Cohen’s show. The revelation that Taylor had been interested in the role of Éponine, the character who was friends with the student revolutionary Marius Pontmercy (played by Eddie), but did not get the part was unknown to many.
All those are in the past, and lots of things have happened since then. Taylor Swift has found new loves and her career continues to soar. After the good showing of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which drew mainly an adult audience during its opening weekend, Eddie Redmayne will concentrate next on the animated feature film Early Man movie will tell the story of Dug, an early caveman. Originally conceived as a trilogy, there are also several other films to follow the much-publicized Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
